Awesome TED lectures

Just wanted to recommend two terrific TED lectures that I stumbled upon. First, the always fantastic lecturer Paul Bloom, from Yale University discusses what makes things valuable. Learn how much people would pay for George Clooney's sweat-shirt - and how much the price drops if it is "thoroughly washed" before you get it. I challenge anyone to listen to this lecture and tell me that you did not enjoy it.


The second video is also absolutely fascinating. Richard Resnick describes how genomic sequencing is speeding up and describes what this will do for you and your healthcare. Enjoy!
